OFFICIALLY A DOCTOR!

TODAY MARKS A BIG MILESTONE IN MY LIFE: TODAY I FINALLY GRADUATE MED SCHOOL. IT SURE AS HELL WASN’T EASY. THERE WERE MOMENTS OF DOUBT, MOMENTS WHEN YOU ASK YOURSELF IF IT’S REALLY WORTH IT. DON’T GET ME WRONG, I ALWAYS WANTED TO BECOME A DOCTOR, TO FOLLOW UP ON MY PARENTS STEPS BUT EVEN THAT DIDN’T PREPARE ME TO THE HARD CHALLENGE THAT IS MEDICINE.

SO MY ADVICE TO ANYONE WANTING TO BECOME A DOCTOR, IS TO REALLY THINK IT THROUGH. IT’S NOT ALL RAINBOWS AND BUTTERFLIES AND LOVE STORIES THE GREY’S ANATOMY WAY. BTW I THINK THIS SHOW GIVES THE COMPLETE OPPOSITE IDEA OF WHAT WORKING IN A HOSPITAL IS, IT’S REALLY MOSTLY STRESS AND SLEEPLESS NIGHTS. IT’S 8 YEARS OF CONSTANT STUDYING, WORRYING ABOUT YOUR FINALS, MISSING EVERY HOLIDAY CELEBRATION AND ONLY A MONTH OF VACATION (AND SOMETIMES WORKING EVEN THEN). 

BUT THEN AGAIN, IT’S ALSO GETTING THE CHANCE TO MEET SOME AMAZING PEOPLE, AND IF YOU’RE LUCKY, BUILDING SOME LIFELASTING FRIENDSHIPS. YOU GET TO LEARN AT THE HANDS OF SOME VERY COMPETENT DOCTORS (THERE’S NOT PLENTY OF THOSE UNFORTUNATELY..). AND THE BEST PART IS THAT YOU GET TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE IS THE PATIENTS’ LIVES. MOM LAYRHEMHA USED TO TELL ME THAT NO MONEY IN THE WORLD COULD TOP THE FEELING YOU GET FROM SEEING THE GRATITUDE IN THE PATIENTS’ EYES AND KNOWING YOU HEALED THEM AND MADE THEIR LIVES BETTER. AND THAT’S SOMETHING I NEVER TRULY UNDERSTOOD UNTIL I BECAME A DOCTOR.
